PANKHURST GIVEN WELCOME BY SUFFRAGISTS ENGLISH CRUSADER ARRIVES AT NEW YORK COMES TO AID STRUGGLE FOR WOMEN'S FRANCHISE Tells Story of Her Imprisonment at London and Declares Confl. dence in Triumph of Cause rT<y Asvoclated Prosa. 1 Tyj BW YORK, Oct. 20.—A quiet little l\ group of New York women, -^-' bearing banners labeled "Vot i for Women," stood on the White Star line pier tonight and welcomed to America Mrs. Emmellne Gould Pank hurst, leader of the militant suffra gettes of Croat Britain, In accordance with the rulings of the, customs authorities, less than twenty persona were admitted on the dock, and the reception to the woman who I has served two terms of Imprisonment for her activity in the cause was de \ "Id of clamor. She was hurried to the sufCraga headquarters at 602 Fifth avenue. .Mrs. Pankhurst is slight of stature and has a wealth of brown hair that is just turning gray. She looked a typi cal Englishwoman and was dressed becomingly in a gown of dark ma terial. "I am coming to America," she said, "to speak on the subject of equal rights fnr women nnd to study the sit uation in this country. I think we are away ahead of you in this matter." Displays Medallion As she talked Mrs. Pankhurst dis played a little medallion whicli she wore and explained that it was a dis tinguishing mark worn by those Eng lish women who have been imprisoned for the cause. "I suffered solitary confinement," she continued, "and had only one hour of exercise out of twenty-four. During the other twenty-three hours I was confined In a little cell eight by ten feet. I had cell No. 47 on the second floor of Holloway prison and I wore the regular prison garb, but I did not brjng the costume to New York with me. . "The movement is progressing satis factorily In England," she went on. "We have pledges from practically two-thirds of the members of parlia ment to vote for us af> soon as a bill is prepared by the government. And we expect sooner or later to compel tho government to Introduce the bill. Just when this will come to pass I am not prepared to say." Mrs. Pankhurst stoutly defended mili tant tactics. Favors Violence "All great movements have been worked out by violence," she said. "The American people secured their ' liberty by violence, so why not rush the house of commons to obtain what we regard as our rights? The ballot granted to women will make them moro Intelligent, less self-centered and on the whole much better citizens." "Don't you think that there would be corrupt women politicians and women ward heelers?" Mrs. Pankurst was asked. "Well," she replied, "I don't think it could make politics any worse at any rate." Mrs. Pankhurst said she had been a suffragette as long as she could remem- I ber. She had gone to meetings in favor !of the. emancipation of women when I she was only 14 years old, accompanied by her mother, who herself was an ardent advocate of the cause. Mrs. Pankhurst will remain in the United States until November 22, but will not be able to get as far west as Colorado, where woman suffrage pre vails. She will speak In Boston Friday, and Worcester, Mass., Saturday, re turning to New York Sunday for a re ception by the national and New York state associations. SANDBAGS AND THEN ROBS MAN D. D.

SIBLE," SHE DECLARES "They Have Lost Sigh* of the Main Issue and Gone Off at Tan gent," Is the Real Verdict COMMANDER EVA BOOTH, "Lit tle Mother of the Poor," third daughter of the founder of the Salvation Army, arrived in Los An geles last night with her party, which consists of Mrs. Brigadier Stanyn of New York, a noted worker among the poor and at present slum secretary o£ the Salvation Army; Major Richard Griffith of New York, Commissioner Thomas Estill of Chicago, Colonel George French of Chicago and Colonel Charles Miles, provincial officer of San Francisco. Commander Booth Is a guest of the management of tho Hotel Alexandria. She will speak three times Sunday in Temple auditorium. The hours for her addresses are 11 a. m., 3 p. m. and 8 p. m. As Commander liooth sat in her room at the Alexandria last night, tired after her long journey, she was not much inclined to be interviewed, but what she said was worth listening to. The first question put to her was on equal suffrage and this is the way she answered it: "I'm a Salvationist, not a politician. The SaH'ation Army is not and never has or will be in politics. It is an international movement for salvation of souls. Save the man and politics will be clean. "The woman who pays taxes and on the same plane with a man sir be allowed to vote, I believe, but i will make her masculine in any way 1 would not be in favor of equal suf frage. Main Issue Forgotten "In England the women have g to extremes. Some of their meth are almost reprehensible. They h: lost sight of the main issue and h gone on! on a tangent which will li them to their own undoing. "The place for woman is ..he h<> Woman may take man's place In office or in any walk of life, but n can never take the place of woman the home. In the army we give worn. the opportunities of development every possible way, but we do not developing her take from her an: hef womanliness. If politics leads the destruction or harming in I slightest degree of woman's functi in life, I say let women keep out politics. "Motherhood is the greatest th in the world. It is in the home t man li made. If the mother is ta from her home by politics it nr the downfall of the nation, no ma what rights at the polls may, be given to women. "I love Los Angeles, for it Is a garden spot and the people here have madn me do my work better. This is my third visit here and if It is as pleasant as were my previous ones I shall feel happy and fully repaid for coming." Filled with Enthusiasm Commander Booth is a mediumly tall woman and slightly thin. She wore a long military overcoat last night, and, with her close cropped hair, which falls around her face like a halo, looked exactly the part in life she Is, commander of a great army of re ligious workers. She haa a personal- I ity full of magnetism and when she speaks she carries conviction with her every word, for she is filled with sin cerity and enthusiasm. As she spoke of the work of the army, especially of her own work among the slums of London, where she gained her enviable title of "Little Mother of the Poor," she leaned forward slightly In her chair, her hands tightly clasped, and ; she seemed to be living again the days when she walked among: the wretched of England's metropolis, garbed In patched and torn dresses, selling flowers and water cress that she : might come more intimately in touch I With her work and with her subjects. Her addresses Sunday undoubtedly J will be to packed houses, for thou ■ sands have been turned away wher | ever she has appeared. From here she vt" go to San Franolsco and Oak land. Her trip Is one of Inspection and of information gathering. Since her early childhood Miss Booth has been identified with slum work and is probably the most famous doer of good among the bedraggled poor that the world has ever known. She Is de clared to be one of the most magnetic speakers to ever appear before an audi- ence. In a recent lecture In the Greek theater In Berkeley 16,000 people were present. Governors of almost every state In the Union have honored her. At Ocean Grove, where she lectured less than two weeks ago, two congre gations, aggregating 26.000 people and Including a delegation of 500 ministers, were attentive listeners. Won Respect of All Of Miss Booth's work among the poor, It Is said that her unfailing tact, her ceaseless efforts and her open, heartedness and self-sacrifice have not only won for her the respect of the people among whom she works, but also their undying love. It is related that two years ago while the young wom an lay dangerously ill, a young tough, whom she had saved from a life of crime, hearing of her Illness, sold his vest that he might buy a few pieces of fruit for her. In executive ability there are few women who equal Miss Booth. At an early ace she was In charge of the Brit ish college wherein Salvation Army officers are educated for the work of saving souls. At the same time sh was in charge of the London province, which was made ud of more than 20, --000 Salvation Army workers. Miss Booth later became comman der of the Salvation Army forces In Canada, where she made an enviable record. The title of her lecture here is "Won derful." The stage effects for her lec tures are good, and she will be sup ported in her appearance by forty staff and field officers.
